He said he had to wait until he knew how. Amd then he'd be able to do it. But once he knew how he stopped wanting to do it. And thats when he told himself he had to learn even more, cause then one day he'd know enough to finally do what he'd wanted to do all along.
Then one day he began wondering whether such mindset could ever lead to being ready. Because there was always more to learn. So he stopped learning because it wasnt about learning more. It was about doing. But doing what? He couldnt remember anymore. But he was doing something. He was at work typing on a keyboard. That was his job. But while walking home he wondered what was it that he had been intending to do? What had made him need to learn so that he could do it? Why hadnt he just done it then even if he didnt know whar he was doing? Because after all this preparing by learning to do, he didnt feel any more prepared.
He sat in the meetup listening to ppl excitedly talk about their projects and then his turn came. And he had no idea what to say. He didnt know what he was doing. He needed to learn more. And everyone applauded his desire and ambition to learn.
Later he was on the internet tryjng to learn when he forgot what he was trying to do in the first place. He felt scared so he continued learning. And downloaded a couple apps to help him learn and plan and plan to learn and learn to plan to learn. And eventually he found himself walking to a meetup... the planning app had suggested one... and when he walked in a guy offered him an ipa beer.
The group when around discussing their projects, sipping their beer and their soda waters. And he was wondering what he would say come his turn. Everyone else was talking about their projects and he said he had an idea but he didnt know how to do it. And then a guy in the meetup said 'go learn!'
